Keeping job site clean while loading in base for paver patio

I will be using a BobCat T110 track skid steer to load in the gravel for the base of my paver patio. Problem is that it has rained heavy for the last few days and the area around my job site where the gravel is located is bound to pick up some mud/dirt on the skid steer tracks while hauling the gravel in.

Any advice on how to keep the job site clean short of manually bringing in the gravel with a wheel barrow (40+ tons of it)?

I had considered putting down some tarps but I can only imagine what the skid steer will do to the tarps when I need to do any mild turns (let alone a 360).

Washing the tracks down before entry into the job site area would be horribly time consuming.

I have laid down 4x8 sheets of plywood to try to keep the mess down to a minimum.
